“Emir Kusturica and his band were greeted for the second time in Bogota by over a thousand people drunk with happiness on a memorable 27 of March.
What started as a tour full of cigarettes, beer, salsa dancing, traditional food, liquor and a visit to the football stadium of the city, became a performance with all the power of Eastern Europe, featuring an explosive presentation, closing with the irrepressible energy of these party animals. For two hours they shook the city with the anthems and chants all balkanistas long dream of witnessing .
“Bravo! ” Was the ovation given to the No Smoking Orchestra, and rock band Burning Gypsy Caravan, who got the audience hot and ready for the final chaos.
This concert was definitely a great achievement for the Colombian Balkan scene, an audience of music lovers and night owls that has gown over the years, infecting them with the nostalgia of gypsy music that will continue traveling the world of fiery souls.”
